2 Background IRIS is a common complication after ART initiation, particularly in patients treated for TB TB-IRIS incidence: 10-40% 2 clinical presentations: paradoxical / unmasking TB-IRIS Major recognized risk factors: –disseminated TB –low nadir CD4 cell count –short interval between starting TB therapy and ART We report incidence, time of occurrence, clinical features, outcomes and risk factors of paradoxical TB-IRIS in severely immunocompromised HIV-infected adults enrolled in the CAMELIA (CAMbodian Early vs. Late Introduction of ART) trial.
3 CAMELIA trial CAMELIA was a randomized strategy trial with no placebo designed to determine the best timing for ART initiation in naïve HIV-infected adults with CD4 cell count ≤ 200/µL and newly diagnosed TB in Cambodia Two arms of ART initiation after tuberculosis treatment onset: ‘‘early’’ (at 2 weeks) vs. ‘‘late’’ (at 8 weeks) Standard TB regimen: 2RHZE/4RH ART: D4T/3TC/EFV Primary endpoint: survival at the end of the trial 661 patients enrolled and followed for a median time of 25 months Reduced risk of death in the early arm (HR: 0.62; 95% CI, 0.44 to 0.86; p=0.006)
4 Definition of TB-IRIS TB-IRIS was defined as a worsening or emergence of signs or symptoms of TB at any time after ART initiation, exclusion of a newly acquired infection, the clinical evolution of drug-resistant TB, recurrent TB, the expected clinical course of a previously recognized infectious agent, or the side effects of ART Each case of suspected TB-IRIS was reported by on-site treating physicians as an Adverse Event and secondarily reviewed and validated by 2 members of the clinical coordination team
5 Study profile 661 HIV-infected adults enrolled in Camelia trial 64 patients were excluded: - 16 non tuberculous mycobacteria - 37 deaths before ART initiation - 2 withdrawal before ART initiation - 9 without follow-up after start of ART 597 patients enrolled in this analysis 155 developed paradoxical TB-IRIS 442 did not develop paradoxical TB-IRIS
6 Patient characteristics at ART initiation Median age (IQR): 35 years (30 – 41) Median BMI (IQR): 17.4 kg/m 2 (15.8 – 19.1) Median CD4 cell count: 26 cells/µL (12 – 62) Median viral load: 5.6 log copies/mL (5.2 – 6.0) No difference between patients with or without TB-IRIS
7 Incidence & timing of TB-IRIS TB-IRIS occurred in 155 patients (26%) Incidence: 3.16 per 100 persons-months (95% CI, 2.7 to 3.7) Median time (IQR) of occurrence: Time (days) p=0.53
9 Treatment & outcome Treatment during IRIS None Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Corticosteroids 39 57 59 Median time from TB-IRIS to treatment, days IQR 5 1–14 Outcome Cured TB-IRIS related death Withdrawal during TB-IRIS 148 6 1
11 Conclusions High frequency (26%) of paradoxical TB-IRIS in HIV- infected patients with advanced immunodeficiency Double the risk of developing TB-IRIS (HR 2.23) when ART initiated at 2 weeks Median time of TB-IRIS occurrence: 2 weeks, irrespective of early or late ART initiation Low mortality directly related to TB-IRIS: 6/155 (3.9%) in accordance with published data During the first weeks following ART initiation, clinicians should be vigilant to recognize signs of TB-IRIS (lymph nodes, fever, abdominal pain…). However TB-IRIS should not be a barrier against early ART initiation in severely immunosuppressed patients.
